Anyone ridden Trapper or Unity Kapow

Just wondering if anyone had ridden / demoed / owned a Trapper model, more specifically one of their twin pow shapes? Also interested to see if anyone has ridden the new Unity Kapow model....Twin pow shapes..interesting

I personally haven't ridden either, but everyone swears by Trapper here in Revy... They look dope and I'm hoping to get out for no-board with them soon.

Unity is a solid manufacturer. Don't know about the Kapow, but you are not going to get a poorly made board from them.

Trapper has good pedigree behind them too.

Sorry man. I've ridden the Dominion models from Unity and loved them. I have not seen any Trapper boards in the states. You should get one and review it for us.

How was the Dominion in terms of construction? Seems as though the handcrafted independent snowboard companies get little exposure while companies like NS, Burton, Arbor market hard. Maybe too, the independent companies are charging higher prices for their product, hence the smaller interest

Unity boards are made burly. Bomber contruction like you get out of Never Summer or Venture. Must be a Colorado thing. Unity also does the ptex sidewall thing. Very durable boards.

Yes, that seems to be confirmed by a few crew who have ridden them. One of the riders at the local stores reported he jumped from the Dominion to the Kapow and loves it. Seems like a board that can ride a broad spectrum of style and terrain
